Celtics Fall to Grizzlies as Avery Bradley Returns

(Matt Stone/Bostonherald.com)

The Boston Celtics continued their recent struggles last night and fell to the Memphis Grizzlies, 93-83. The loss was the fourth in a row for the Celtics, who are now three games under a five-hundred.

Old Celtic friend, Tony Allen, proved to be the key to the Memphis victory as he had a season-high 15 points to go along with his exceptional defense. Mike Conley added a game high 23 points and nine assists for the Grizzlies, while star forward Rudy Gay continued his stellar play by pitching in 19.

The Celtics were pleased to see the return of their fiery shooting guard Avery Bradley who was seeing his first action of the year. However, in his twenty minutes of play, Bradley scored only four points. Paul Pierce anchored the rather dull Celtic offense as he contributed another night of solid scoring with 17 points. Rajon Rondo had yet another double-double with 11 points and 10 assists.

The Celtic’s play Friday night against the 19-13 Indiana Pacers who are led this season by swingman Paul George.
